Straight No Chaser: Knock!! Knock!!
“See who that is please.”
“I can’t tell – the guys got a sheet on . . . . but he said “The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies .”
Well, truthfully, in a nutshell, a pigskin or a Klan robe . . . the only question here is; will the country club that is the NFL open its door to Rush?
Will they arrogantly shove this racist, sexist and extremely elitist – down the sports-nation’s throat? Will these fat-cats have the arrogance to demand Black men perform for Rush “Bull Connor” Limbaugh?
Deepen his already ridiculously deep pockets, and, more importantly to Rush; strategically provide Rush with another stage, another visible, viable platform for him to proclaim his legitimacy upon . . . .
“ Sorry to say this, I don’t think he’s been that good from the get-go. I think what we’ve had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well . . .” And he wants an NFL team to run?
Wrapped up in all this – will NFL players, from all walks of life, but specifically the 65% which is Afro-American, and thus the daily target of Limbaugh’s insults and uncontested kicks to the testicles, will these marginally enlightened, yet blinded-by-the-bling Mandingos - go quietly into the night, into a Coliseum packed full of fans . . . who predictably look nothing like the ebony gladiators – in order to make everybody a profit?
This is a high noon showdown.
Progressive wordsmiths who, like myself, feel obligated, duty-bound even, to not let this bitch-slapping go unchallenged; writers sittin’ in the kitchen talkin’ politics, and those out on the patio – chewin’ the fat over the wide weird world of sports -both groups have an keen interest in — halting such an rude, foul, boorish business move come to fruition.
If a guy, who’s aggressively leading the “hang ‘em high” chorus against this nation’s first Black President — calling the President “Barack, The Magic negro”
And he’s now being rewarded — by a small group of his fellow aristocrats — with an NFL plantation. Such antics unquestionably constitute a slighting of Black players and coaches of the highest magnitude by the NFL owners.
Either Afro-Americans are invisible to the eyes of owners, or, the owners are ignorant of how very insulting this venture is or, our perceptions are immaterial, of no real consequence . . . irrelevant.
I’ll go with the later.
This is a move, which I believe, I hope like hell, would create a backlash unseen in the NFL. Nobody may be showing up to protest Vick’s rightful return to the league, but if you give a man who has said to Black callers to his radio show . .
.”take the bone out of your nose,” well then my friend, you’re asking for a ass-whuppin.
Better yet, what does a guy who’s said ” Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.”
So, enlighten me. If a man calculates, as Rush did here – the vast majority of Black players are gangsters, low-lifers, thugs and hoodlums, then why does he desire to even be associated with a business which employs Public Enemy #1?
What game does he want to play? What point does he want to make? Well, perhaps it’s this one; “They oughtta change Black History Month to Black Progress Month and start measuring it.”
Or . . .?
Please, please, please, let this fat bastard decide he can field an all White team and be competitive in the NFL. Please let him think he can pull such a Hitler like premise off. Just like Berlin – 36, this poor man’s Adolf will have his feelings hurt, his dastardly dreams of superiority shattered.
BYU, despite the help of brainwashed Samoans and delusional negroes – gets put back in their second tier place every year once they walk on the field with . . . superior athletes.
Let Rush attempt the same on the pro-level, no matter how many Uncle Thomas Sowells, Ward Connallys’ or Clarence Thomas’s on his squad . . . they won’t be able to compete.
Nevertheless, if Rush is given the St. Louis Rams, it will be regarded as an affront to . . . everybody but wealthy White men, and I’m sorry, but that group no longer dictates what is acceptable and respectable, and, a racist hate monger is not acceptable to at least half the nation.
Yes Rush, over half the country is not composed of sympathetic Rednecks who side with you, but with people who aren’t card carrying Klansmen like yourself.
What I’m baffled about . . . how, why can the league owners even consider a guy, who on the record has made such comments as “Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society.”
They’re 12 percent of the population. Who the hell cares? And you’re going to tell me it’s irrelevant this bastard said these things? He is qualified and well suited, fit to orchestrated a team stocked full of men he apparently dislikes and perhaps even despises.
Who would give such a angry racist man an professional sports franchise, but other racist men?
